As well as mean­ing drink and also a drinks party, pot also has the same mean­ing as it does in English (make sure you do not pro­nounce the ‘t’). It is used in many French ex­pres­sions: un coup de pot means a stroke of luck; être sourd comme un pot means to be deaf as a post; and tourner au­tour du pot means to beat around the bush.
